This used to be my favorite store for the longest time. Their products are aimed more at teenagers and fandoms, in my opinion. I love their Disney, Harry Potter, and anime collections, among many other things. They have some really awesome shirts, but they are pretty high in price. The only reason that I give them a four is because their price and quality of products don't quite match up...

The place to go for all fandom and nerdy needs. They carry an array of items from different shows, anime, bands, movies, etc. but also carry fashion items. Would definitely recommend this store, especially with the constant sales and possibility for coupons.

Hot Topic is a fun store that carries men & women's styles. They have clothing, jewelry, accessories, perfume, makeup & peirceing jewelry. My daughter & I will shop here for fun items when we go to concerts. I'll shop here for some fun clothes for work too. Not real expensive if you deal shop!

Hot Topic is my favorite store. I get pretty much all of my clothes from here. I got my outfit for my homecoming dance at school from here. Everything is so great and they always have what I want and they have the best deals.

I can almost always find something I really like in here. My style is all over the place and this store accommodates for that and many other styles. Not just “goth” or whatever people usually associate this store with. My issues with the store include their “coupons” they give you which honestly really don’t do ANYTHING, they just make you think you’re saving money. But really you can’t stack coupons so if an item is on sale for example and you have “hot cash” then the item goes back to original price when you spend your hot cash. Also I’ve had many many MANY issues with the clothing I’ve received. Often the quality of the item isn’t good at all. Which is really unfortunate for how expensive they can be.

This is what comes up for the victorian tea length Nightmare before christmas dress.
I do not care for this movie, however I bought all the dresses and 2 of the ivory because it is so pretty and it does not weigh a ton..
It seems it would flatter any body type.
Its a linen blend or cotton blend, with as built in petticoat.
You may have to not wear a rack holster if you are skinny but big racky, the dress is not generous with shelf space.
It has lace straps I put a bolo with puff victorian sleeves in the Photo over top of it, you can see from my wrists and leaning forward posture that I am pretty thin, i hace a long build with too much in the front and trunk, So if you are similar please Size up, I am in a Medium which I normally wear with space to spare, I had to draw the lace tight for underbust and waist after i struggled with the zipper to get it on.
Pros, no petticoat needed.
Great for warm weather its got cute lace straps.
Add a victorian bolo for autumn or spring, or if you dont like appearing as a stick with assets, this is also useful here.
It does not feel scratchy because theres a silky skirt slip sewn to the very inside also.
The waist is high just above natural waist, a pseudo baby doll almost. and it does lace up a bit so you should be able to adjust it.

Cons, large rack [if posts "ch"e" word is "bad" to this app i have been nerfed using medical terms 0.o ] people will get into mortal combat with the zipper,
Thin or stick on "babazoonga holder" are even hard to fit in it.
It is light and sadly it will stain, So you have to be careful.
It wont take a champagne dye I tried this because I am clumsy with things.
So the fabric will stain but it will not hold dye too well that is a lighter subtle omes anyhow.
[It thinks im posting a bad word, I cant find any. so if words are missing, edits sorry.]

I still suggest it, because its so victorian and lovely looking, I picture most body types looking great in it! Hot TopicThe Nightmare Before Christmas Striped Cheer Hair Bow

Does anyone else wished that hot topic was easier to walk through? It's always so small and crowded.
